Read on for the story of our two custom Royal Enfield motorcycles:
In 2019, to honour the times of breaking out and enjoying life on a new level, ROYAL ENFIELD launched the INTERCEPTOR 650 and the CONTINENTAL GT 650. Bringing back two Twin engines for the first time in 50 years, ROYAL ENFIELD reminds us again of the good old times…
Motorcycles are a symbol of freedom and independence. This shared striving for freedom is what made our subculture merge into a worldwide community of motorbike riders.
Because Parts Europe has such an extensive portfolio of parts for these great bikes, we decided to team up with some of our partners to upgrade the two Royal Enfields.
